Boston will face off with the Hawks on Thursday night at 8pm at TD Garden. The broadcast can be seen on TNT or CSN locally. There was a risk that it would be a 6pm tip for Boston-Atlanta, if the Nuggets failed to extend the series last night against the Lakers.
That would have created an awkward 6pm and 830pm doubleheader for TNT with Bulls-Sixers being the latter game. The 6pm tip also probably would have lead to a sizable crowd decrease at the opening tip, with plenty of people probably struggling to get to the Garden from work with the early tip-time, potentially nullifying a portion of home-court advantage for the C’s. Luckily however, the Nuggets held on last night and the Garden will be as packed and as noisy as ever for Game 6.
